I have not been to a race in about 5 years so I decided to go watch the SKUSA race at DKC. I was shocked at the amount of people just punting the guy in front of them and not even trying to pass. I am not saying everything was better in the old days but I do know the more body work that’s been added to the karts has increased the amount of intentional contact.  At one point on the grid I heard someone ask their driver why didn’t you just punt the guy out of the way, I think the rear bumpers are a large part of this mentality plus they just look stupid.
